Kiev Fires Ballistic Missiles into Eastern Ukraine

Pentagon intentionally withholds  information on Kiev’s indiscriminate use of ballistic missiles in populated areas.

July 30, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – LD) – CNN has reported that the regime in Kiev launched several short-range ballistic missiles into eastern Ukraine – each missile containing warheads of up to 1,000 lbs (450 kg). The missiles fired were OTR-21 Tochka also known by their NATO reporting name as SS-21 Scarabs and are considered far from “precision” weapons.

While smaller than the infamous “Scud” missile, SS-21s are similarly inaccurate and their use in combat against an enemy entrenched in populated areas is almost guaranteed to cause indiscriminate mass casualties. Read On…

What’s causing the slide towards war?

by Washington’s Blog | July 30, 2014

Paul Craig Roberts – former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan, former editor of the Wall Street Journal, listed by Who’s Who in America as one of the 1,000 most influential political thinkers in the world, PhD economist – wrote an article yesterday about the build up of hostilities between the U.S. and Russia titled, simply: “War Is Coming”.  In the article, Roberts notes:

As reported by Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge, the Russian response to the extra-legal ruling of a corrupt court in the Netherlands, which had no jurisdiction over the case on which it ruled, awarding $50 billion dollars from the Russian government to shareholders of Yukos, a corrupt entity that was looting Russia and evading taxes, is telling. Asked what Russia would do about the ruling, an advisor to President Putin replied, “There is a war coming in Europe.” Do you really think this ruling matters?”

In January, well-known economist Nouriel Roubini tweeted from the gathering of the rich and powerful at the World Economic Forum in Davos Read On…

Gaza in Perspective: Hamas does the bidding of the Israeli state

Hamas and Israel share same policy – eternal war with civilians in crossfire

by Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | July 30, 2014

Earlier this week the comedian Joan Rivers defended the Israeli invasion of Gaza.

During the TMZ interview Rivers said the death rate in Gaza is to be expected and is legitimate because the Palestinians initiated the violence.

But who started what and why?

On June 24 a credible and highly respected Palestinian pollster commissioned by the Washington Institute conducted a survey revealing a solid majority of Palestinians reject violence and prefer a nonviolent “popular resistance against the occupation,” including demonstrations, strikes, marches, and mass refusals to cooperate with the Israeli state.

Wiping Out the Christians of Syria and Iraq to Remap the Mid-East: Prerequisite to a Clash of Civilizations? (I)

Historically, the Levant is the birthplace of Christianity and the oldest Christian communities have lived in it and the entire Fertile Crescent since the start of Christian history. Early Christian called themselves followers or people of «the Way» before they adopted the term Christian; in Arabic their antiquated name would be «Ahl Al-Deen». [1] Traces of this original name are also available in the New Testament of the Bible and can be read in John 14:5-7, Acts 9:1-2, Acts 24:4 and 14. From the Fertile Crescent these Christian communities spread across Africa, Asia, and Europe. Since that time the ancient communities of Christians, many of which still use the Syriac dialects of Aramaic in their churches, have been an integral and important part of the social fabrics of the pluralistic societies of Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Turkey, and Iran. Nevertheless, the Christians of the Levant and Iraq are now in the cross-hairs.

Keiser Report: Dumb Money

RT – In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert with a double header discussing the ‘dumb money’ piling into markets just as the Spectator’s cover story reads: “The Next Crash: We could be on the brink of another financial crisis.” Max and Stacy read through the piece in shock at the obvious signs of misallocation of wealth while chasing dumb bubbles – including a P/E ratio now at 25.6 compared to a historic norm of 16.5. In the second half, they examine more misallocation of wealth as the US spends an additional $1 trillion annually on healthcare compared to if they spent the same percentage of GDP as the next most expensive country, the Netherlands. While overspending by $1 trillion, the energy grid has the most blackouts of any developed nation and yet less than half a trillion could replace the dumb, old grid with a smart, new one.

Are There Any Terrorist Groups Who AREN’T Paid Foot Soldiers for the U.S. Military-Intelligence Agenda?

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. — President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Let me see if I have this right, because it’s getting really hard to keep things straight these days.

So it is on record that the U.S. government/military-industrial complex has financially backed the ISIS rebels in Syria to the tune of tens of millions of dollars, and key members were trained by our CIA at a secret military base in Jordan back in 2012. (See here and here for starters.) In fact, ISIS is reportedly a joint effort created by the intelligence agencies of the U.S., United Kingdom and Israel, as ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi reportedly received military training from those three agencies as per recent Edward Snowden revelations.

Worse, as reports uncovered by Tony Cartalucci showed, “the U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia had planned as far back as 2007 to specifically use sectarian extremists to overrun and overthrow Syria.” ISIS, by the way, is the same group who are now crucifying Christians in Iraq.

The Propaganda and Politics of MH17

MH17_000_par7932493

July 27, 2014 (Eric Draitser – NEO) - The downing of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 (MH17) is a tragedy that will be remembered for years to come. However, the way in which the West has distorted the facts about what happened is no mere accident. Rather, it is a clear attempt by Washington and its allies and proxies to capitalize on the incident, using it as a weapon in their continued belligerent and aggressive policies toward Russia.

Libya’s Destruction a Warning to Egypt, Syria, & Ukraine

BsinH-eIEAA8BOm

July 27, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – RT’s article, “90% of aircraft destroyed at Tripoli airport, Libya may seek international assistance,” reported that:

Libya is considering a deployment of international force to re-establish security amid a flare-up of violence in Tripoli which saw dozens of rockets destroy most of the civilian aircraft fleet at its international airport.

“The government is looking into the possibility of making an appeal for international forces on the ground to re-establish security and help the government impose its authority,” a government spokesman, Ahmed Lamine said in a statement.

The “democratic tomorrow” promised by NATO in 2011 has been realized – that is – in the form of predictably fraudulent elections accepted by no one, leaving a power vacuum apparently to be settled through increasingly violent armed conflict. Perhaps most ironic of all is that these conflicts are being waged between NATO’s various armed proxies it used to carry out the ground war while it bombarded Libya from the air over the majority of 2011.

How Thailand Can Outlast Its Enemies

1381874604976Image: Weathering a siege requires not only strong walls, but the ability to outlast the enemy as well. This can only be done by building something sustainable within the walls, and something worth defending.

July 26, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – ATN) – Thailand’s culture, people, and history is directly tied to that of its indigenous, ancient institutions. For centuries these institutions have guided Thai society, protected it from a turbulent world beyond its borders and at times when this turbulence finds its way within Thailand’s borders. For Thais, these institutions not only give the people cultural and sociopolitical underpinnings, but they give the people tangible, pragmatic guidance in building their communities stronger, closer, and better – and like healthy cells in a body – they create a nation that is likewise stronger, closer, and better.

Bloomberg Lies as Ukrainian Rebels Allegedly Down 2 Warplanes

More deception by West as Ukrainian rebels down two more SU-25 warplanes.

1024px-9K338_Igla-S_(NATO-Code_-_SA-24_Grinch)Image: Are Ukrainian separatists foolish enough to continue using Buk missile systems implicated in the downing of MH17? Or have they been using highly capable man-portable missile launchers like those pictured above all along?

July 25, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – LD) – In Bloomberg’s article, “Two Ukrainian Jets Shot Down, Three Dangerous Explanations,” it claims two Ukrainian SU-25 ground attack warplanes were shot down by rebels over Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, stating:

Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman told reporters in Kiev that two of its Sukhoi SU-25 fighter jets were shot down while flying at 5,200 meters (17,000 feet) over the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine. The pilots ejected, and their whereabouts are unknown.
At 17,000 feet, the planes would have been outside the range of the shoulder-fired missiles that the rebels contend are their only air-defense weapons. The planes would, however, be in range of a surface-to-air missile such as the Buk, which is suspected to have been used to shoot down Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 on July 17.

Bloomberg’s “three dangerous explanations” are patently false. They first assert that the rebels have been lying about the weapons they have access to Read On…

Win: Farmers in El Salvador Successfully Oppose Monsanto’s GMO Seeds

US aid package stipulations would have indirectly required them to purchase Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds

The U.S. recently tried to blackmail El Salvador by telling the country they would limit an aid package if they did not accept the stipulations provided within it - stipulations which would have indirectly required them to purchase Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds. But El Salvador is fighting back.
